Game & Server Basics

How Do I Play This Game?

We highly recommend watching a few videos on the basics. Jfarr has a phenomenal guide to get you started:

My Base Disappeared. What happened!?

One of two things probably happened: you either were offline long enough for your base to be abandoned, or you didn’t place a tool cupboard and place materials inside to prevent your building from decaying. This is a vanilla Rust feature, not a Salty Zombies feature. Watch this video to learn more

How do I use the portable recycler?

Become a donor! Sergeant and Captain VIP ranks both have access to the portable recycler, or you can buy access standalone in the Extras section. Alternatively, if you don’t want to head to a monument with a recycler, you can purchase a placeable recycler in the /shop for $7,500 Salty Coins.

I logged out in a safe zone (Bandit, Outpost, Fishing Village, or Barn) and when I logged in I woke up naked on a beach. Where's my stuff?!

Players are automatically killed after 30 minutes inside a safe zone. This is a vanilla Rust feature, not a server modification. If you log out in a safe zone, you have to reconnect within that timeframe. The only safe place to log out is inside your own secured base!

I died! How long does my bag stay before it despawns?

It depends on the loot you had on you when you died. Loot will despawn anywhere between 20 minutes and 60 minutes. You can see the despawn time for each item on RustLabs.

Despawn Time Rocket Launcher

How often does the server restart?

The US server restarts twice daily at 5am & 5pm EST during daylight savings, or 4am & 4pm EST during standard time, and the EU server restarts twice daily at 2am & 2pm GMT. Because sometimes teams are wiped after a restart, it’s best to add any and all teammates to the Friend Menu by clicking the Add Friend button under your hotbar or typing /fmenu. Adding teammates to the Friend Menu allows you and your teammates to access boxes, vehicles, doors, etc. owned by each other in the event teams are erased.

My planters aren’t getting enough water but I have 38,673 sprinklers! What gives?!

Farming in Rust is finicky. Sprinklers will try to water all planter boxes it has vision. Follow this farming guide from Facepunch.

How often does the server wipe?

All servers wipe on Facepunch force wipe, which is the first Thursday of every month at 19:00 BST/14:00 ET.

What stays after wipe? Do blueprints carry over?

The only things that carry over after wipe are:

  • Salty Coin balance
  • Skins purchased in the /skinshop
  • Backpack size (contents are erased)

Blueprints, experience/levels, inventory, etc. are all erased and everyone starts as a fresh spawn on wipe day.

How do I connect my Discord account for the starter kit?

Step 1: Type /auth in-game and write down the code (usually five letters).
Step 2: Join our Discord server.
Step 3: Directly message the bot named “RUST Auth | DM Me Your Code!
If you followed the steps correctly, you will receive a message stating you have been granted the RUST Verified Player Discord role. You can now claim your free starter kit by typing /kit in-game.

Auth Discord Message
If you cannot message the bot, you need to change your Discord privacy settings to allow messages from users not on your friend‘s list and try again.

How do I report being griefed/stolen from?

It is vital to use video recording software to capture the trolls in the act, then open a ticket via Discord and provide as much detail as possible. 

Video recording software options: 

  • Nvidia GeForce Experience (requires Nvidia graphics card
  • AMD Radeon Software (requires AMD graphics card)
  • OBS
I placed a foundation/wall/ceiling/box/etc. How do I remove it?

Most deployables (boxes, workbenches, etc.) can be picked up by holding E with a hammer in hand, but the item will take durability damage. Alternatively, you can type /remove in chat. Note you must be the one that placed it in order for this to work. Also note that boxes that have been stacked must be removed with a hammer.

How do I lock my vehicle/horses to me/my team?

Hop in your vehicle/on your horse while within range of your tool cupboard building privileges. You will receive a notification that it has been privatized.

Privatized Horse

How do I unprivatize my car/heli?

First, de-authorize yourself on your tool cupboard by holding E on it. Make sure the vehicle is not on a car lift and left click the car or heli with a hammer. A popup will ask if you would like to unprivatize your vehicle.

unprivatize

How do I get a tugboat?

Tugboats can be purchased at Harbors for $5,000 Salty Coins. Check out the Tugboat section of the FAQ for a list of super cool things you can do with your tug!

Is there a purge before wipe?

Yes, purge is active roughly 24 hours before wipe.

What is a purge?

Purge is when all servers go PVP and raiding other players is not just enabled, it’s encouraged!

  • Abandoned Base events grant a good chunk of cash.
  • Raidme events, when successfully defended, award you more Salty Coins than you spent.

  • Winning a Survival Arena event grants you Salty Coins.

  • Spend them on items in the shop in-game by typing /shop or clicking the Shop button under your hotbar.
  • Spend them on skins by typing /skinshop.
  • Teleporting (to another player, home, bandit camp or the outpost) costs $50 Salty Coins.
  • Order an NPC raid on your base.
  • Buy a raidable base that can only be raided by you and your friends.

Abandoned Base Events

Every hour, our Abandoned Bases plugin checks for players who haven’t logged on for a certain amount of time and converts their base to abandoned if it meets certain criteria. Once a base is converted, an announcement will appear in chat, a dome will appear around it, and a bright pink circle will appear on the map. Once a player has attacked the abandoned base, the bright pink circle will become a deep purple colour. The base is locked to the first attacker and the raider cannot do another abandoned base event for 30 minutes.

claimed and unclaimed smaller
How long until my base is converted to abandoned?

Bases are converted after a certain amount of days of each person authorized on a TC being offline:

  • Non-donor: 4 days
  • Ensign: 6 days
  • Corporal: 8 days
  • Sergeant: 10 days
  • Captain: 12 days
Is there any reward for doing these?

You betcha! After the base despawns, you get $1,000 Salty Coins and 3,000 experience.

Why can't I damage this abandoned base?

The base is likely owned by someone else.

Look at the map marker for the base. If the player name following [Raider] on the marker is not your name or one of your teammates/friends, someone else tagged the base and it is theirs to raid. This happens often as it takes a few minutes for the pink circle to convert to a purple circle map marker.

raider on map marker

How do I finish a raid? It won't let me do another!

The tool cupboard must be empty or broken in order for an abandoned base to be considered complete. The base is considered “completed” when all boxes and the TC are emptied or destroyed.

AutoFarm & Submersible Pump

AutoFarm is a neat plugin that automatically plants and harvests crops for you! It has a sprinkler attached and three storage adapters for the seeds, the crop output, and fertilizer. All planters have this enabled by default. The submersible pump pulls clean water for your crops out of thin air. No more crowded rivers or lakes!

Planter Planted Smaller

AutoFarm

How do I make an AutoFarm planter?

All vanilla planters are automatically converted when placed in the world. 

How do I disable my planters from having AutoFarm features?

Before you place a planter, type /autofarm in chat. Any planters placed prior to entering this command will need to be picked up if you want the features removed. Type /autofarm in chat again to re-enable the features.

How many planters can I place?

See the Limits section. You are limited regardless of size, style, whether AutoFarm is enabled or not, etc.

For example, if the limit is 16 for planters for non-donors, players can place 8 AutoFarm planters, 4 regular large planters, and 4 small planters, or whatever combination they choose.

What are the satchels for?

The left satchel is for seeds and clones. The right satchel is where the harvested goods are stored.

Does AutoFarm harvest clones?

It can if you put a knife (any type) in the left satchel with the the clones/seeds. As soon as the plants reach the Sapling stage, if there is a knife in the seed satchel, all plants will be cloned and added to the output (right) satchel.

What are the industrial storage adapters for?
  1. The adapter on the left interacts with the left satchel, which accepts seeds and clones.
  2. The adapter in the planter interacts with the planter itself and accepts fertilizer only.
  3. The adapter on the right interacts with the right satchel, which is where the harvested goods are placed by the plugin.

Industrial

How do I hook up water to the planter?

Use any water source like the submersible pump that doesn’t need to be placed in/near water and use a hose tool to connect to the top of “in” of the white fluid splitter attached to the front of the planter. You can daisy-chain other planters by using the “out” connections in the same fluid splitter.

Water In

Can anyone access my planter and stashes?

Nope, only friends!

Submersible Pump

How do I make a submersible pump?

There are a few steps:

  1. Must have the water pump (tier 2 workbench item) researched.
  2. Must have the materials to craft a water pump in your inventory (200 metal fragments, 250 wood, 1 gear).
  3. Must be in range of a tier 2 or 3 workbench.
  4. Type in chat /pump craft and a pump will be added to your inventory.

Icon

Where do I place the pump?

The submersible pump must be placed near or on ground. It can be placed on a foundation as long as the foundation is close enough to the ground. It can be placed in shallow water, but not in deeper water where water pumps normally are placed.

Pump too far from ground

How do I pick up my pump? /remove isn't working!

Tap the pump with a hammer in your hand. The pump will appear on the ground as a “small generator” – be sure to pick it up!

Pump to pick up

How much electricity is needed to power the pump?

It takes 5 RW to power the water pump.

How fast does it pump and how much can it store?

The pump works exactly the same as a vanilla water pump. It pumps clean water at the rate of about 85 ml of water per tick, which is about 10 seconds.

The pump can hold a maximum of 2,000 ml of water.

Boss Monsters

Bosses appear around the map—some at fixed locations, some randomly. You can see their icon and current health on the map. They can drop seriously valuable loot (e.g., M249s, C4, rockets, and Nams Epic Loot gear!), provide a pretty good experience, and even earn $500 Salty Coins! Note that the Operators set from Nams Epic Loot does affect bosses.

Defendable Bases

Every three hours, an announcement will be made in chat that the event will be starting soon. After 300 seconds, the defendable base will spawn and another announcement of the location will be made in chat. Bosses and other NPCs in the area will despawn. You have 20 minutes to arrive to the compound, prepare defenses, and gather allies. You must start the event by interacting with the targeting computer and “calling for assistance” prior to the 20-minute countdown completing. There are six waves of enemies that will rush you from all sides with little time between waves. Repair, restock trap ammo, and replace missing barricades between waves.

When you first arrive to the Defendable Base, you will want to locate the targeting computer somewhere in the center of the compound. The first section (shown in section ❶)  is where you can purchase upgrades to the base (auto turrets, flame turrets, and shotgun traps), purchase barricades (Tier 0-4) to place at the entrances, and start the event. You must provide the materials for each upgrade and if you want more barricades than is provided initially for free.

Upgrade purchased

Click on the items to put into your inventory (shown in section ) so they are highlighted green then click “Confirm”. You will need to manually place the barricades in doorways, ignoring any possible errors stating you’re too close to a monument.

Targeting Computer UI Numbered

Once all preparations are made, click “Call for assistance” in the middle of the targeting computer (shown in section ).

How many hit points do the barricades have, and what do they cost?

Barricades
  • Tier 0: Cost: 500 wood; Hit points: 500; Repair with (each hit): 30 wood & hammer
  • Tier 1: Cost: 1,000 wood; Hit points: 1,000; Repair with (each hit): 50 wood & hammer
  • Tier 2: Cost: 1,500 wood & 1,500 stone; Hit points: 1,500; Repair with (each hit): 50 wood, 50 stone & hammer
  • Tier 3: Cost: 2,000 wood & 2,000 metal fragments; Hit points: 2,000; Repair with (each hit): 50 wood, 100 metal fragments & hammer
  • Tier 4: Cost: 2,500 wood & 100 high quality metal; Hit points: 2,500; Repair with (each hit): 50 wood, 2 high quality metal & hammer

What are these numbers appearing at the top of my screen?

This is your chance to earn more loot! Go to the targeting computer where you started the event and enter the six-digit code that corresponds with the code above the num pad. You have to enter 2 or 3 codes before earning any rewards. Once all codes are entered correctly, rewards will be available in the inventory panel on the right.

Extended Industrial

This neat plugin allows you to place storage adapters on most deployables you otherwise can’t. Note: Items transferred to containers like composters will not auto-split the stack evenly, like when you manually add them from your inventory.

Hover over the deployable with a storage adapter in hand to attach a storage adapter. A blue icon will appear, and the adapter will attach when left-clicking. You can place a storage adapter on the following deployable (along with the usual vanilla items:

Friends

Is friending the same as teaming?

No. Teammates can see each other on the map and have a private chat.

Click the “Add Friend” button under your hotbar or type /fmenu and click the icon to the right of your friend’s name to send a friend request.

Friends Add Button

Your friend will hear a notification and will have the opportunity to accept or deny the friend request by either clicking on the green check mark or typing /f accept.

To give your friend tool cupboard access remotely, click on the gears icon next to the player you want to give access and toggle the “Access to cupboard” setting. This is turned off by default. This is especially handy if you want to allow your friends to teleport within your tool cupboard building privilege.

Monument Owner

(Anti-Grub)

The Monument Owner plugin is designed to prevent grubbing (stealing) loot and experience from kills at major monuments, for bosses, and  for certain events. Players who fulfill the requirements to become the owner of the monument, boss, or event, will become the “owner” for a set duration, allowing only them, their teammates, and friends to interact with objects, loot, and damage entities. Non-owners can enter the zone, but cannot perform any actions other than loot their death bag, if one exists in the zone. NPCs will not attack non-owners, given that there is a current/active owner of the monument.

Reading the Map

  • You can see which monuments are subject to ownership by looking at the map. If the monument has a green circle around it, it is subject to ownership, but there is no owner currently. If the monument has a red circle around it, it is subject to ownership and has a current owner.
map owner circles

If the vending machine icon at the center of a circle is clicked, a variety of information can be displayed, if applicable:

  • Name of boss
  • Owner of boss, monument, and/or event
    • (B): Boss owner
    • (M): Monument owner
    • (E): Event owner
  • If there is an owner, it will display how long is left until their ownership expires

In the example to the right, the location displayed shows the boss Scary has 5000 health and no one is the owner of the boss, but Desdaa is the owner of the monument for 29 more minutes.

Ownership Vendor UI Boss and Monument Timer
Cooldowns

Cooldown

  • Once ownership is lost, the player and their team is immediately placed on cooldown for 30 minutes and cannot become owner until the cooldown is complete.
  • Cooldowns and ownership for monuments, bosses, and events are independent from each other.
    • Example: Player can be on cooldown from Missile Silo, but can still attack a boss or participate in an event, and vice versa.
  • Friends are not affected by the cooldown timer.

Commands

  • /ownergiveup – Removes ownership immediately
  • /ownercd – Checks the duration of current cooldowns and from what monument, boss, or event
  • /ownerrules – Shows the requirements to become owner in your current zone
  • /ownerreject – Reject ownership of a monument (eligible up to 30 seconds after you gain ownership) – useful if you are just passing through the area
Rust Logo Team Page
Owner none 1 requirement done
Ownership UI You

Requirements and lengths

  • Ownership is kept for the entire duration, even if the player leaves the area or dies.
  • There are different requirements and ownership length per monument. The requirements will appear in a UI under the HUD on the right side of the screen, and also in chat for just the player(s) pending ownership.
    • If there is more than one requirement to be owner, the UI will update with what requirements have yet to be met to obtain ownership.
  • The UI will update in real-time with the time remaining on ownership.
  • All event ownership is for the entire duration, with the exception of Cargo (listed below).
  • Events do not trigger a cooldown.
  • All boss ownership is for 10 minutes.
  • Monument information:
    • If all actions to become owner are not required (third column), only one of the actions is needed.
    • If a monument has a hackable crate in the zone, starting to hack the crate will immediately give ownership.
    • Monuments not listed below are not goverened by the plugin.

Can I craft Epic Loot/enhanced items?

Any equippable gear or weapon can be enhanced if crafted by a donor.

I'm not getting duplicates when crafting gunpowder or explosives with my Fabricators set! Is this a bug?

This is intentional and not a bug. You will not receive duplicate crafts of gunpowder or explosives with a Fabricators set.

Where Can I Find Epic Loot?

Epic loot can be found in crates, boxes, on NPCs, and in raidable bases.

What is Nams Epic Scrap and how do I get it?

If you find an enchanted item, but don’t want it, you can scrap it to receive Nams Epic Scrap. Go into the Epic Loot UI and click click the Salvage button:

recycle

Click on the icon of the item you want to get rid of and click “Salvage”:

salvage button

nams epic scrap

You will get Nams Epic Scrap equivalent to the salvaged item’s tier:

  • S (Legendary – Yellow): 10 Nams Epic Scrap
  • A (Epic – Purple): 8 Nams Epic Scrap
  • B (Rare – Blue): 6 Nams Epic Scrap
  • C (Uncommon – Orange): 4 Nams Epic Scrap
What do I do with Nams Epic Scrap?

Once you have 100 Nams Epic Scrap, you can add any enhancement on any non-enhanced item. Go to the Epic Loot UI and click the bottom icon:

enhance

Click the item you want to enhance, click the type of enhancement desired (miners, raiders, etc.), then click “Enhance”. The item will receive the desired enhancement with a random tier and percent roll.

enhancer

Can I change the skin on an enhanced item?

Yes! Purchase the skin in the /skinshop, put the item in your hands, type /skin to bring up the available options, then click on the skin you want.

Note: Captains have access to all skins through the command /skins, which unfortunately will remove the enhancement! To get around this, Captains should “purchase” the desired skin in the /skinshop (the shop will say it costs Salty Coins, but Captains will not be charged), and apply the skin using the /skin command.

I’m not being refunded everything with my Assemblers set! Is this a bug?

The Assemblers set gives you a chance to refund the materials on anything you craft, but it will never refund gunpowder, sulfur, or explosives. This is intentional and not a bug.

Nams’ Task Force

Nams’ Task Force, or RoamTasks, are server-wide quests that appear every 10-30 minutes. You will hear a beep, and a task will appear above your hot bar. You’d better hurry, though – only a certain number of players will be rewarded for completing the task!

Task UI
What tasks are there?

There are many unique tasks, including hunting animals and NPCs, gathering resources, looting crates, catching fish, swiping keycards, driving/flying vehicles, and even winning at gambling!

What do the icons mean above my hotbar?

Task UI Icons

1: The number of players who have completed the task and the total number of players allowed to complete the task.

2: The time remaining on the task. If the maximum number of players completes the task, it will end before the timer expires.

3: The current task.

4: Your progress on the current task.

Can I turn off the tasks?

There is currently no ability to disable tasks for appearing on a per-player basis.

What are the rewards?

The reward varies depending on the task and whether you are one of the first few to complete it. The general list of rewards:

  • Salty coins ($50-$150)
  • Scrap (75-200)
  • Nams Epic Scrap (10-30)
  • Supply signal
  • Large present

Oxum’s Gas Station Event

Info coming soon!

Patrol Heli Signals

Purchase a heli signal in /shop with Salty Coins to summon a patrol heli to attack you at your location! Cannot be used at monuments. There are four difficulties to choose from to keep things interesting. There are no rewards other than the loot the heli drops for successfully killing a summoned heli (no Salty Coins, experience, etc.).

Health (total)

Easy: 10,000
Medium: 20,000
Hard: 30,000
Elite: 40,000

Number of Loot Crates

Easy: 4 (2-6 items per crate)
Medium: 6 (4-8 items per crate)
Hard: 8 (6-10 items per crate)
Elite: 10 (8-12 items per crate)

Despawn Timer

Easy: 30 minutes
Medium: 30 minutes
Hard: 40 minutes
Elite: 1 hour

Cost (Non-Discounted)

Easy: $1,000
Medium: $1,500
Hard: $2,000
Elite: $2,500

Heli signals are subject to shop discounts for donor ranks.

Portals

Portals are a fantastic way to get to and from places without paying $50 Salty Coins for every teleport and use those precious daily limits. Buy them in the /shop under the items section (you’ll need to buy two because one by itself is useless)

A few things to note about portals:

  • Anyone can use your portals to keep them in a locked building away from windows if you don’t want others to access them.
  • They must be named the same thing (case sensitive) to link two portals.
  • This means if you name your first portal something super generic, like “home”, someone else can name it “home” before you place your second portal down and link it to yours. Because of this, it’s best to use a unique name for your portals.
  • Portals do not have to be placed in a doorway, but they do have to be on a foundation or floor.
  • Pick up a placed portal by pressing E with a hammer.
  • The limits for placing portals are divided by rank:
    • Default: 2 (1 set)
    • Ensign: 4 (2 sets)
    • Corporal: 8 (4 sets)
    • Sergeant: 12 (6 sets)
    • Captain: 16 (8 sets)
3 Portal Placed

Raidable Bases

How many satchels/rockets/boom do I need to do a raid?

It all depends on the base’s layout. A handy resource is RustLabs, which will tell you the hitpoints of every item in the game and how much boom is needed to destroy it. You will need a minimum of 8 satchels to do an easy raid, but again, more may be required depending on the layout.

  • Easy: No external walls, stone walls, sheet metal doors
  • Medium: External walls, stone walls, sheet metal doors, chance of SAM site(s)
  • Hard: External walls, sheet metal walls, sheet metal doors, chance of armoured doors, SAM site(s)
  • Expert: External walls, armoured walls, armoured doors, SAM site(s)
  • Nightmare: External walls, armoured walls, armoured doors, SAM site(s)

How do I Buy A Raid?

raid prices

Type /buyraid to bring up the UI to choose the raid you want to purchase. The raids are paid with Salty Coins. Only you, your team, and your friends can raid the purchased base.

Once purchased, the raid will begin to form. Depending on the layout, it may take some time. Once it is complete, a notification will appear in the chat, and the owner will be identified.

raids buy chat

Raidme

There are five difficulties to raidmes: easy, medium, hard, expert, and nightmare. The raiders will attempt to destroy the closest TC that the owner is authed on. The base must be on land – not a sandbar, over a river, etc.
Note: Only the individual who purchased the Raidme will receive the Salty Coins reward.
Commands and details for each are:

  •  /raidme buy easy: 10 NPCs each wave; 3 waves total (cost: $500 Salty Coins; reward: $600 Salty Coins)
  • /raidme buy medium: 15 NPCs each wave; 4 waves total (cost: $1,000 Salty Coins; reward: $1,200 Salty Coins)
  • /raidme buy hard: 20 NPCs each wave; 5 waves total (cost: $1,500 Salty Coins; reward: $1,800 Salty Coins – Ensign & above ranks only)
  • /raidme buy expert: 30 NPCs each wave; 5 waves total (cost: $2,000 Salty Coins; reward: $2,400 Salty Coins – Corporal & above ranks only)
  • /raidme buy nightmare: MLRS strike at beginning; 30 NPCs each wave; 6 waves total (cost: $2,500 Salty Coins; reward: $3,000 Salty Coins – Sergeant & above ranks only)

Tool cupboard cooldown. What does that mean?

There is a 24-hour cooldown per tool cupboard, except for Captains, who do not have a cooldown. This means after you place your TC, you must wait 24 hours before ordering a raidme, and wait 24 hours between each raidme.

What loot can I expect?

The harder the tier, the better loot you will get, and more of it than in easier tiers. Of course, these items are not guaranteed. The loot tables are:

  • Easy: Gun body parts, tech trash, pistol & rifle ammo, beancan grenades, bandages, syringes, CCTV cameras, targeting computers, and scrap.
  • Medium: All of the above, plus HV rockets, satchels, med kits, blueberries, molotov’s, and F1 grenades.
  • Hard: All of the above, plus HV rifle ammo and regular rockets.
  • Expert: All of the above, plus C4 (but no satchels), explosive rifle ammo, and large presents.
  • Nightmare: All of the above, plus supply signals.

Skill Tree & Experience

How do I spend my skill points?

Type /st or /xp to access the skill trees.

What is debt?

Sometimes when you die, you lose experience and go into XP debt. Get rid of it by earning XP.

Skins

You can buy skins by typing /skinshop and using Salty Coins to purchase skins!

I purchased a skin in the skin shop. How do I skin my item?

With the item in your hands, type /skin. If you have any skins purchased in our /skinshop, they will display as options. Left-click the desired skin to change your item.

How Do I Use the Skin Box?

Warning: Do not use the skinbox if skinning an enhanced item from the Epic Loot plugin, as it will strip the enhancement from the item! Use the method on the left instead.

To use the skinbox, there are two options:

  • If the item has not been placed, type /skins or /s and right-click the item you want to skin. Use the arrows at the bottom of the UI to scroll to more skins. Right-click on the desired skin to skin the item.
  • If the item has been placed (e.g., a door), type /skinitem or /si while looking at it. Right-click on the desired skin to skin the item.

Stackable Chests

How Do I Stack Chests?

Donors can stack chests of the same type on top of each other! With a box in your hand, right-click on an already placed box of the same size. Watch this video below:

How Do I Remove The Stacked Boxes?

With a hammer in your hand, hold E. The boxes must be empty and not have any industrial crafting attachments. Once the stacked boxes are removed, you can use the /remove command to remove the bottom most box. You cannot use the /remove command on the boxes that have been stacked.

Survival Arena

Step into the heart-pounding chaos of the Survival Arena! As a brave contender, you’ll enter the fray naked, armed with nothing but your wits. You must find gear and weapons and take out your foes. But you can’t dilly dally for long, because a shrinking bubble drives you toward the center of the island – forcing you to face the other survivors and battle to the death.

When the island appears in the sky, players can join the arena before it starts by typing /survival in chat, or leave the arena at any time by typing /saleave. All inventory contents, including hot bar and equipment, are stripped from players that enter, but is returned once the player is eliminated, leaves the arena, or the event ends.

Note: Do not attempt to fly to the island in a mini, jetpack, etc. You will die and you will not be able to retrieve your corpse. 

What's in it for me?

Aside from the obvious bragging rights, there are a different rewards based on how well you did:

  • Winner (last player standing): 75-150 Nams Epic Scrap, $250-$450 Salty Coins, 750 experience
  • Participant: 10 Nams Epic Scrap
  • Loser (first player to die): 2x the participant reward
It says I have a forbidden item when I try to enter!

You have a jetpack in your inventory. Put it in your server backpack or in a box then try to join the arena again.

What can I find in these loot boxes on the island?

There are two loot tables which is randomly assigned when the arena begins: gun loot (T2 & T3 armor and weapons) and primitive loot (best weapons you will find are bows and revolvers).

Teleporting Info

How Do I Get Back To My Base?

Note: All teleports, whether home, to another player, Bandit or Outpost, cost $50 Salty Coins.

Set your home teleport before you leave your base by typing /home add homename. Note this is case sensitive. You will get a confirmation in chat if it has been successfully added.

Teleport by typing /home homename. Example of adding a home teleport:

tp home add

Example of teleporting to a home location:

tp home

How Do I Teleport To Another Player?

First, you must add the player to your Friend’s List. Once added as a friend, type /tpr nameofplayer to teleport. To accept the teleport request of another player, type /tpa. Example:

tp tpr

Tip: You do not need to type the full name of the player for this to work, as long as the part of the name entered in the command is not shared with another online player. Example teleporting to a player named BestCopperhead, but only typing “copper”:

tp tpr nickname
tp tpr nickname example full name
How do I see a list of my home teleport locations & names?

Type /home list.

I’ve added someone to my friend’s list but it says I’m in a building blocked zone within my own building privilege. What’s going on?

Your friend needs tool cupboard access in order to teleport within your building privilege. You can grant them access through the friends menu, or you can run outside your building privilege to accept the teleport.

I’m trying to accept a teleport request but I’m getting the error “You can only use a home location on a foundation!”

You either need to be on the foundation or ground when you accept a teleport request, or the friend does not have access to your tool cupboard.

I’m trying to teleport but it keeps getting interrupted. Why?

Either you or the person you are trying to teleport to is taking damage, or the person you are trying to teleport to is entering a building blocked zone (in the range of an unauthorized tool cupboard).

Can I teleport to my corpse?

Yes! Type /where tp to teleport to your last death location. If you died in a building blocked area (next to someone’s base, for example), you will not be able to teleport and will have to run.

Type /return to be teleported back to your original location.

Shipwreck Event

The Shipwreck event allows you to visit the ocean’s depths to discover 3 new locations every hour: a sunken cargo ship, a submerged ore farm, and a shipwrecked barge.

In the wreckage, you will find a high concentration of loot. Just be careful! The COBALT group has already arrived and is exploring the site. They have submarines and divers already in the water!

cargo ship
What should I do to prepare?

It’s a good idea to bring:

  • Several spearguns (3-4) and ammo
  • Full diving suit which can be purchased at fishing villages
    • Always bring a spare diving tank as they only have 600 seconds of oxygen per tank
  • Nightvision goggles
  • If you arrive in a submarine, equip it with 50-100 torpedos
  • Key cards (all 3) if going to the shipwrecked cargo ship
  • A jackhammer or pickaxe if going to the submerged ore farm
  • A friend or two so you can teleport to them when you die 😉
What enemies will I encounter?

Patrol Submarines
Subs do a LOT of damage, but they have low visibility and low accuracy. Very unreliable at Titanic depths. Subs are a serious threat if you arrive in a submarine yourself. Try to sneak up behind them and destroy them!

Cobalt NPC Divers
High accuracy, but not much armor and don’t pack a huge punch. Almost harmless if you arrive in a submarine, but they are still a threat!

Killer Sharks
These sharks have smelled all the blood in the water, after being drawn to the area already by all of the disturbance. They are here, they are mad, and they are bloodthirsty and hungry!

Sputnik

Sputnik is an event that allows players to contest fallen sputnik satellite fragments that fall around the map. Players will need to battle their way past patrol helicopters, NPCs, turrets, and landmines to gain access to loot locked behind keycard readers that require Space Cards.

Where do I get a space card?

Space cards can be found in the small blue crate in the center of Radioactive Space Debris, which does not spawn every time the event spawns.

Radioactive Space Debris Smaller

Where do I use a space card?

Space cards are used at Sputnik. The card reader glows green and there is a timed crate next to it.

Space Card Reader and Crate Smaller

Tugboats

How do I buy a tugboat?

Head to a Harbor, Ferry Terminal, or Fishing Village and talk to the vendor in the diving hazzy to buy a tugboat for $5,000 Salty Coins.

Type /tughelp in chat for info on using your tug!

Tugboat Vendor Smaller

What can I place on my tug?

You can place the following deployables, normally not allowed on a tugboat:

  • Samsite (limit 1)
  • Auto turret
  • Water catcher (small)
  • Concrete barricade
  • Composter
  • Large banner
  • Landmine
  • Bear trap
  • Searchlight
  • Guntrap
  • Flame turret
  • Boombox
  • Telephone
  • Microphone stand
  • Connected Speaker
  • Soundlight
  • Gunrack (wide, tall & horizontal)
  • Large & small planters

Although the deployable will appear red and might display an error in chat, it will place.

Shotgun Trap Smaller

I placed a (insert normally illegal deployable here) that requires power. How do I power it?

Simply turn on/power your tug. As long as the tug is running, your deployables will remain powered.

I've placed a (insert normally illegal deployable here) but it's facing the wrong way. How do I rotate it?

Hold R and right click the deployable with a hammer to rotate it.

What is AutoNav and how do I use it?

AutoNav, or Auto Navigation, allows your tug to follow the same course as cargo automatically! When driving the tug, you will notice a button in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Hit tab and click on the button, run the motor full-blast, then dismount! You will receive a notification in chat that AutoNav has been enabled.

AutoNav button

Is there a horn?

There sure is! Left click while driving to blow the horn. 

Do tugs decay?

They do. Start the engine every day/every other day to prevent decay. 

I've lost my tug! How do I find it!? (or) My tug is stuck! How do I un-stuck it?

You can teleport your tug to you by typing /tugtome in chat. It’s a bit finicky, but it will move your tugboat and (should) un-stuck it.

Virtual Quarries

How Do I Access the Virtual Quarries UI?

Type /qr or /vq to access the user interface. Here, you can see the quarries installed and see the max quarries you are allowed, based on donor tier.

UI Smaller

How do I get a Quarry or Pump Jack?

Quarries and pump jacks are available in the Construction section of the /shop for $7,500 Salty Coins. While you’re in the shop, you’ll also want to pick up a survey charge in the Tools section for $200 Salty Coins, then research the survey charge in a Research Table as you will need more than one.

quarry and pump jack icons 1

I have the quarry, now how do I place it?

Everything is virtual, so it’s all done in the UI. Before starting, be sure to research the survey charge in case you need to make more. You will likely use at least 30 survey charges, or possibly more depending on the resource you are searching for.

Click the plus button in the quarry list to start searching for the material you want. Click “Search”, which will consume a survey charge each time. If the resources displayed in the Current Resources box are not what you are looking for, keep clicking “Search”. Once you are satisfied with the resources the quarry will provide, click “Place”.

Using Charges

What are the max resources I can get?

The minimum and maximum outputs per minute for each resource are as follows:

  • Crude oil: 1 – 3
  • Stones: 90 – 180
  • Sulfur ore: 27 – 54
  • Metal ore: 50 – 90
  • High quality metal: 1 – 4
Can I upgrade my quarry/pump jack?

You can upgrade your quarry to increase its output by 15% and fuel consumption by 10% for $1,500 Salty Coins. Open the Resource Container to access the upgrade button.

What fuel do I use and how do I start it?

Both the quarry and pump jack use low grade fuel for fuel. Click the icon next to “Open fuel container” to access the fuel storage.

Once there is fuel in the fuel container, you can click “Start” to start the quarry/pump jack. It will continue to run until it either runs out of fuel or runs out of space in the output (resource container).
